Upcoming Dates

Lasagna Love

Baker students and staff spread kindness and helped feed families in our community!

This week our Baker Family partnered with a nationwide homemade meal delivery organization called Lasagna Love. They are a grassroots organization that aims to fight food insecurity by connecting those in need with neighbors who can provide homemade lasagnas. Sign up and participation is private and easy. Lasagna love seeks to eliminate stigmas associated with asking for help during a time when it is needed most. This was a fun way to provide service to the community while connecting with our Baker Family!
